We are in the midst of one of the most exciting times in the company’s history and while we are already recognised as the global leader in our industry, we will not become complacent. We continue to work to revolutionise the market and our PINK people are what makes this possible. We are passionately committed to going the extra mile for our clients, partners and people. Our values to ‘be brilliant together’, ‘maximise potential’ and to ‘challenge everything, deliver excellence’ are part of our unique culture. This is the PINK glue that binds us.

It is time for Thomsons Online Benefits to continue its success. We truly believe that using our platform and products can impact and improve people’s lives. In fact, nearly 2 million people are already using our platform (Darwin). That’s a lot of people enjoying their flexible benefits!

 

About the team: 

We are a dedicated, highly communicative team that have a genuine passion for what we do – we work closely together, (we live in Zoom and Slack), and operate in a busy, but fun environment. We are looking for someone that can fit into this; likes being part of a team, has a growth mind-set and is a good communicator. Some days can be extremely busy but we make sure it’s balanced and understand (as well as encourage) there is life outside of work. We are extremely proud and committed to the team culture we’ve built; no-blame, trusting and can-do.
